One who passionately engages in one or more things to extreme levels. A commonly ascribed term to people in the field of computer programming, but one does not have to be in a technical field to be a geek. The only criteria is an intense level of interest in something, often to a highly specialized degree.

The term currently seems to be most used when referring to various fandoms. Whatever you do, never mention the Endor Holocaust to a group of Star Wars geeks. It will become amazingly convoluted.
I just finished creating a full-sized exact replica of the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo, complete with seat indentations based on the estimated weight of each member of Mystery Inc. I'm such a geek!

a social class, however we spread into other social classes as well. In fact, usually the only official geek social class is a small ring of friends.
There are suce a large variety of geeks, its impossible to find how many there are. The most all-including definition is that a geek will demand on being called a geek, not a nerd. A geek can be the most popular person in school or the most outcast one. The only more precise description is that the average geek will be extremely cynical towards any new school policy. If you came here to find out if someone's a geek, you'll never know. I'm only working on personal experiences. I'm a geek, so I know at least a little bit. anyone who is a geek will be able to know if anyone else is a geek.
Joe was walking down the halls, attempting to find friends. He finally found Frank, a nice enough guy who was relatively popular. Joe, however, identified him as a geek. Then he realized that, according to the urban dictionary entry, he was therefore a geek. He also realized that this scenario was the example. Would it follow him forever? He felt horrible. The only way was to kill himself. He found a pen and stabbed it in his eye.
--a very geeky example--

n. a book-smart person who is attractive and generally well-liked. Not to be confused with nerd (a book-smart person who is not attractive -or doesn't keep up his/her appearence- and usually a social outcast) or a dork (does not have to be smart or popular, just used as a silly insult).
AC: "Moss, WHAT did you make on that quiz?!"

Moss: "Uh, 96."

AC: "You nerd."

Hannah: "Noooooo, Moss's a geek; she's pretty!"

Moss: "Why thank you!"

The modern interpretation of geek is someone who has a strong interest and enthusiasm towards a particular generalized subject, or a specific segment of that subject. There is no restriction on the types of subject that would qualify someone as being a geek on that subject. The interest may be strictly observational, but could also be participatory.

A "nerd" is sometimes used interchangeably with "geek". But more accurately, a nerd is a type of geek (commonly, but not entirely, restricted to interests involving academics or fantasy) who has difficulty communicating coherently with others outside the realm of their own interest.
The subject of a geek's interest can be absolutely anything, such as cars, video games, live theater, movies, music, technology, etc. Or the interest could be focused on a specific segment, such as a type of car, a style of theater, a genre of movies, a style of music, an area of technology, etc.

A music geek's participation, for example, may be limited to just watching musical performances, or actively playing an instrument.

The largest, and most vocal, collection of people who have a strong interest and enthusiasm towards a particular subject would be sports geeks.
